Apple announced Wednesday that it is expanding its independent repairer program. Companies in Europe and Canada can now sign up to offer customers iPhone repairs using genuine Apple parts.
Independent repair program available for iPhone users in Europe and Canada
Since the iPhone repair program launched last fall, 700 companies have been added by 140 companies, including uBreakiFix. Companies from 32 European countries, as well as Canada, can now apply to join the independent repairer program. Training is free, but companies must hire an Apple-certified technician to perform the repairs.
Jeff Williams, director of operations for Apple, said:
We are delighted to extend our independent repair program to more locations in the United States and to companies in Europe and Canada. When a customer needs a repair, we want them to have a range of options that not only meet their needs, but also guarantee safety and quality so that their iPhone can be used as long as possible.
